Re: 12V Battery Replacement ?

I'm here in Florida so the coldest it gets is in the mid to upper 30's (Fahrenheit) for only a few days out of the year. Still, lithium tends to do better in temperature extremes than lead acid. But better yet, lithium can hold its charge for a long time so if you don't drive it for a month or two t...

Re: 12V Battery Replacement ?

https://youtu.be/X_0lFn9YFNg No issues whatsoever in the year or so since I first installed this setup! And I do like the additional peace of mind: I've been stranded on the side of the road because of a dead lead acid battery way too many times in my life back in the old ICE days... As for ReLion,...

Re: Has anyone replaced their 12V battery with lithium?

Speaking of batteries... Just wanted to give an update on my 2016 Soul EV+. It's been a great car for about a year, but a few months ago I started noticing that the range was dropping by one mile almost every time I charged at home. I chalked it up to the weather at the time (in Florida) being very ...

Re: Soul Spy?

I know this is an old thread, but I just wanted to say (in case it might help someone) that I was having lots of problems connecting, etc until I went into the Soul's all apps->settings->device connections and deleted my paired phone from the list. Then it worked perfectly. Then it was a simple matt...

Re: Has anyone replaced their 12V battery with lithium?

Well, not a buffer reserve per se, but it should be possible to get a "jump" from another car (including an ICE car) just enough to connect the traction battery relay and allow driving. Then the DC to DC charging system would provide power to the accessories, even if the 12V battery was ka...

Re: Miles per kwh confusion

Heh heh, can you imagine actually getting 99.9 km/kwh? That would be awesome. Maybe some day? ;)

Re: Miles per kwh confusion

I will reset the not-quite-correctly-named "energy consumption" display just to see how it changes (if at all). Your display is showing 8.1 km per kwh which translates to about 5 miles/kwh, which is quite a bit more than what mine is showing (usually around 4.0 to 4.1). Hopefully this will...

Re: Miles per kwh confusion

I have SoulEVSpy and the dongle (the one recommended by the author is no longer available it seems but I found one that other people seem to be using with success). I guess I should get around to hooking it up and seeing what's what. It's a 2016 and I've just hit 25000 miles so I can't imagine that ...

Re: Miles per kwh confusion

How do I reset the GOM? Is this something I can do myself or would a dealer have to do it? Also, that GOM has never shown an estimated range higher than about 86 miles. I figured since the advertised range for this vehicle is 93 miles that the GOM range is just reducing the estimated range because o...

Miles per kwh confusion

I have a couple of questions about the guess-o-meter. If I go into the history of my driving I see that the miles per kilowatt hour has actually gone up a tiny bit since I first got my vehicle yet my guess o meter has gone down because of a recent trip of about 90 miles. For a long time it was 3.9 m...
